    I'm trying to watch it in this stupid room, but no one else seems interested in anything other than their own conversations.

    Oh jeez, i hope nobody's been hurt.

    That photo is insane. I sort of love Twitter for that kind of thing, it's amazing really.

    Shots fired at U.S.Capitol, female suspect killed


    http://nbcpolitics.nbcnews.com/_news...-suspect-kille
    The United States Capitol was placed on lockdown Thursday afternoon after a woman tried to ram a car into the White House gate, was chased by Secret Service and exchanged shots with police, sources said.
    The suspect — who sources said had a child in the car — was shot and killed, and a shelter-in-place order was lifted at about 3 p.m. At least one Capitol Police officer was injured but apparently not shot.
    "This appears to be an isolated incident," said Capitol Police Chief Kim Dine. "Both scenes are under control."
    NBC's Brian Williams reports on the shooting at the US Capitol, with NBC's Kelly O'Donnell in the Capitol building, NBC's Pete Williams with what's known about the shootings, and NBC's Kristen Welker at the White House.

    President Barack Obama was briefed about the harrowing incident, which came in the midst of the government shutdown that has created a tense atmosphere on Capitol Hill.





    It started at 2:18 p.m. when the woman in a black car tried to breach White House security at 15th St. and E, law-enforcement sources said.
    She did not get through and was chased at high speeds for about 12 blocks, the sources said.

    I wonder what her plan was if she had driven through the gates? She had a gun with her, so I am sure she had an intended target. All of this with a child in the car.


    Todays world is so scary.

    I'm watching the news, and the anchor said there was a man in there too.

    So sad. I kept thinking there had to be a way to stop her without shooting her. Then I saw the footage and saw she was out of control. I still wish they had shot her in a way that didn't kill her. They saw she had a child in the car.

    I have seen the video. With all those cops clearly swarming the car, I don't understand why they did not shoot out her tires or shoot the engine block, but YET they fired at the car once it took off again. I talked to a family relative of mine who has been highly trained for situations and has been in situations like this and he too was questioning why.

    Yeah, and I get it. I just don't think people laugh when it is directed at the ones they support. Don't get me wrong, I am not a TPer, but I think those here who support the Dems/Left would be up in arms (har har) if someone said the same thing about them.

    I'm not trying to start shit with you, really. I'm just someone who believes that if we want to set this country back on the right track, this sort of comment isn't the way to do it. It has to start with the people, because the damn leaders are shit. So we, the people, HAVE to start getting along or we are no better than the pricks who led us to this place. Comments like this from either side give ammo (har har) to the other to continue the BS cycle.

    I'm not usually (I hope) one to hop up on some self-righteous soapbox and be all Suzy Serious. I just have people I love dearly on both (even to the extreme) sides of the aisle and I hate conflict and feeling stuck between the two.

    And so...back to my regularly scheduled programming whereby I snark on celebs and try to ignore the shitstorm in my nation's capital.
